Watford vs West Bromwich Albion Preview
Watford have picked up three wins from their last five at Vicarage Road including their 1-0 win against Everton at the weekend. Troy Deeney picked up his fourth goal of the season with a superb second-half strike to give The Hornets all three points. That win took Watford up to 10th in the league and six points clear of the bottom three. Although six points does not guarantee safety, Javi Gracia will be confident his side have enough quality to avoid the drop and collecting three points on Saturday should be enough of a safety net to ensure that.
Barcelona loanee Gerard Deulofeu will likely miss Saturday’s match through injury after coming off against Everton at the weekend. Peruvian Andre Carillo is expected to take his place on the right wing.
Gracia is without a number of players through injury, including Jerome Sinclair, Nathaniel Chalobah, Tommie Hoban, Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart, Molla Wague, Younes Kaboul, Christian Kabasele and Tom Cleverley. However, he has no new injury concerns and is likely to field a similar starting XI to that which achieved victory over Everton.
West Brom are rock-bottom of the Premier League and are the bookies favourites to go down. The Baggies need 7 points just to get out of the bottom three and with time running out, it’s looking less and less likely that they will pull it off. They’ve lost their last 5 league games in a row and have picked up just 7 points from a possible 42 on their travels. Those 7 points came from four draws and just one win against Burnley in their first away game of the season.
Alan Pardew is under increased pressure at West Brom as his side continue to fail to pick up points. He’ll be aware that this may be his last chance to save his job and with 3 winnable games at home coming up before visiting Old Trafford, it might be the time for change should Pardew fail to deliver on Saturday.
Daniel SturridgeNacer Chadli and James Morrison will all miss the trip to Vicarage Road through injury but Pardew is expecting to name the same starting XI that lost 2-1 to Huddersfield at the weekend.

Watford vs West Bromwich Albion Predictions
This may be Alan Pardew’s last chance to get something out of his players to save his job and the club from relegation. However, West Brom have been exceptionally poor on the road this season and have failed to win a staggering 25 of their last 26 matches. Watford come into the game off the back of a positive 1-0 win against Everton and they will be confident of sealing Pardew and West Broms fate by inflicting yet another defeat on The Baggies.
